How Do I Organize My InfoMinutes

Today I spoke with a CPA who asked this question. The name of his filing cabinet is CPA. The drawers he chose are [A] taxes [B] entities [C] bookkeeping [D] audit. Do this for yourself. Name the filing cabinet the one or two words that other people say you do – Realtor, or dentist, or…

“Everyone is a great client for me” is not ever true – InfoMinute Green Card version

Tyler felt spammed (Best Client version) because she wasn’t seen. She was lumped. Eeeewww.
